Plan ahead for preservation: use the calculator to include the estimated cost of archiving into your tender, project design or grant application. Save the PDF of your estimate, include it in your budget and keep a copy for your records.

Use the calculator for:

  • Estimates for inclusion in tenders for small scale commercial work
  • Estimates for inclusion in small grant applications
  • Estimates for privately/self-funded work

If you have a larger archive (for example from a large or long-running excavation or research project), or more specialist file types, you will need to contact us for a 'bespoke' cost.

***Important Information***

If you have not used the costing calculator before (or since the update in October 2017) you must read this first to understand when you should use the calculator, how our charges work, and how long your estimate will be valid for.

Stuck? A quick read of our FAQs is usually quicker than an email to the helpdesk!
